You will need to remove the the retainer clip and remove the brake switch and the rod will then slide off the pedal pin.

check the brake free play in the brake pedal. (the amount the brake pedal travels before the push rod hits the piston). IF you have ABS then the ABS is inoperative.

I am trying to replace the brake booster on my 1995 chevy silverado and can not figure out how to remove the brake pedal.


the brake pedal would not ned to be removed to change this out. when you lay under the steeering column, you would be able to see the coneting rod..it is held on with a c clip. once the clip is removed you can then slide the rod of and pull it out throgh the fire wall (of course after master is out of the way...be suure to not turn the rod on booster as many have adjustable lenght rods that if out of adjustment can apply your brakes without physicaly applying the brake pedal...hope this helps

2000 chevy silverado; not all the time but every so often when i step on the brake pedal it feels like it gets hung up on something and it wont depress.when i take my foot off for a second and step on it...


Check the brake pedal rod.Make sure it is not binding.Remove the rod and work the brake pedal and make sure it does not catch or stick to anything.Look at the pedal real closely and make sure there are no cracks in the metal where it pivots.Good luck.

Any info on changing a brake booster on a 1996 Sierra and also help trouble shooting a master cy. Thanxlinder


a defective master has just one common symptom, a soft sinking pedal.
Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Nose pliers
  • Ratchet and socket
  • Ratchet extension
  • Slip joint pliers
  • Wrench
  • New cotter pin
    Removing the Old Brake Booster
  1. Step 1 Park your car in a safe place with enough room to work around the front and driver side of the vehicle.
  2. Step 2 Locate the booster push rod connected to the brake pedal.
  3. Step 3 Remove the cotter pin securing the booster push rod pin to the brake pedal using a pair of nose pliers.
  4. Step 4 Release the push rod pin from the brake pedal and slide the push rod off the brake pedal.
  5. Step 5 Unscrew the four mounting nuts off the brake booster studs using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket. You should be able to see the four booster studs extending through the firewall, in front of the brake pedal.
  6. Step 6 Disconnect the vacuum hose from the brake booster, working from the engine compartment. Use a pair of slip joint pliers.
  7. Step 7 Remove the two nuts holding the brake master cylinder to the brake booster. Use a wrench or ratchet and socket.
  8. Step 8 Separate the brake master cylinder from the booster just enough to make room for booster removal.
  9. Step 9 Pull the brake booster off the firewall and remove it from the vehicle.
    Installing the New Brake Booster
  10. Step 1 Set the new booster in place by sliding the push rod and four mounting studs through the mounting holes on the firewall.
  11. Step 2 Slide the brake master cylinder flange over the two mounting studs on the brake booster.
  12. Step 3 Start the two brake master cylinder mounting nuts by hand to avoid damage to the threads.
  13. Step 4 Tighten the two brake master cylinder mounting nuts using a wrench or ratchet and socket.
  14. Step 5 Connect the vacuum hose to the brake booster.
  15. Step 6 Screw the four mounting nuts to the brake booster working from inside the vehicle. Start the nuts by hand to avoid damaging the threads.
  16. Step 7 Tighten the four mounting nuts using the ratchet, ratchet extension and socket.
  17. Step 8 Position the brake booster push rod over the brake pedal and slide the push rod pin.
  18. Step 9 Install a new cotter pin to secure the booster push rod to the brake pedal

Brake lights dont work but the other tail lights do


Check the brake light switch under the dash attached to the brake peadal arm. It is wher the break booster push rod attaches. Sometimes that switch works loose.

Stuck in park


I stuck a flat blade screw driver up in the little white switch above the brake pedal (you can see it if you look directly above the pedal through the steering rod. It is being pushed by a small piece of metal in the plastic casing) and then tried shifting out of park and it worked. It was a really cold night before and I guess the grease just froze up. It seems to be working fine now even without pushing it in with the screwdriver. Thanks so much deltamech!
